Hmm. Handbuilt in Taiwan. Trek 830's of this age were Taiwanese built, not a problem but know what your buying!

Not a true vintage trek, not sure about 1980s, more early 1990s. The early ones were lugged beauties with 22 inch frames. This one was out the same time as the investment cast lugged ali 8000 series ones which was 1991/1992 I think

Pretty sure 300 Lx came out around 90. Nice enough bike but hardly super collectable.

Only in Germany!

Looks like it was 1991, so we were both either side of the mark!

300 LX started life in 1990. I recall this being fitted to the purple 1990 Raleigh Mirage after which I lusted.

Ah a better saddo web page. I bow to your greater knowledge of ze jerman inturveb!

300lx, pah, still not a patch on Exage Mountain, now that was a 1980s groupo. Had Trail on my first proper bike and then ugraded to Mountain, then to Mountain LX then hupped to XT. None of this 300/400/500 stuff for me!

Yup, agree with '92 - I remember them in Freewheel the same time I chose my Cindercone.
